Round 2 - Czech Republic - Brno

Bartels-Bertolini's MC12 come back and just miss out the podium
28/05/2006

Brno - The second round of the FIA GT championship concluded today at the Czech circuit of Brno. At the end of the three-hour race, the MC12 driven by Michael Bartels-Andrea Bertolini just missed out on the podium. The Trident pair was just seven tenths off Gollin-Babini (third in the Aston Martin). In second came Deletraz-Piccini (Aston Martin) with Bert-Janis (Saleen) taking top spot. Jamie Davies-Thomas Biagi, in the other team Vitaphone Maserati, finished in sixth place. These results were not a disappointment as they were obtained on a difficult track and in uncertain atmospheric and surface conditions.
